Challenge

Help gamers become pro players

Battleriff Gaming AB is part of the fast-growing esports market.

Their main focus was to develop a peer-to-peer service where people can challenge each other while playing for real money.

The platform should be integrated with a chat feature, personalised interface while working with an unlimited amount of popular esport games. It should also allow the users to connect gaming profiles from other platforms directly to Battleriff to enable competing with other players.
